Trump official on family separations: We are saving lives

Donald Trump

"Well, I have a solution".

Speaking outside the White House before flying to Europe, Trump said: "Well, I have a solution. Come like other people do, come legally". That's the solution. Don't come to our country illegally.

When asked if he means that he is punishing the children, Trump doubled down. We have borders. Don't come to our country illegally.

The Trump administration is struggling to unite immigrant families that it separated at the U.S. -Mexico border after another U.S. judge in San Diego last month ordered them to be reunited as soon as Tuesday. "It's not a good thing". A judge rejected officials' request to extend the deadline. The administration has until 26 July to reunite all of the more than 2,000 children who were separated from parents this spring and summer.

Under the "zero-tolerance", policy, while parents entering the U.S. illegally were held for prosecution, children were placed in Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) facilities across the country.

Sabraw said Monday that he was "very encouraged" by the Trump administration's "real progress" in reuniting the families.

The President, speaking to reporters as he departed the White House en route to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Belgium, went on to defend US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is facing increased scrutiny from Democrats and immigrant advocates.

"The people that are fighting ICE, it's a disgrace", Mr. Trump said. "We want to support ICE, not what the Democrats are doing", Trump said.

In some cases, the lawyer said, parents have been deported or are in jail facing criminal charges, requiring more time for reunification.
